Money Is the Secret to Happiness, Science Says

Money can buy you happiness, a new study shows. But it must be spent wisely: not on material possessions, but on time-saving activities that will contribute to living a more satisfied, relaxed life.
A team of researchers led by Harvard Business School professor Ashley Whillans surveyed nearly 4,500 people, including millionaires, from the U.S., Canada, Denmark and the Netherlands on their spending habits and life satisfaction with the goal of tackling what they call the “time famine of modern life.”
The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States (PNAS) journal, observed that those who believe in the mantra “time is money” suddenly  feel like they do not have enough of it. So how to tackle the feeling of time scarcity that leads to stress, anxiety and unhappiness? The answer, of course, is money.
The researchers first asked a narrow, specific question about whether people paid others to do “unenjoyable daily tasks,” such as domestic work, to be able to “increase their free time.”
Only 28 percent of respondents said yes, spending an average $147.95 per month to buy themselves extra time. These people also recorded increased life satisfaction compared to those who did not spend money this way.
In the second part of the study, researchers asked more than 1,800 Americans whether they spent money to buy “more free time.” The responses were roughly split in half, with those who spent between $80 and $99 per month, on average, on outsourcing chores reporting a higher degree of life satisfaction.
